“It’s no secret that pit bulls get a bad rap. Myths that the dogs have “locking jaws” and always fight to the death are widespread, and studies have shown that the media sensationalize pit bull attacks.
That’s probably among the reasons this picture, entitled “Your typical violent and aggressive pit bull,” went viral on Reddit over the weekend, garnering nearly 1,500 comments and nearly one million views.”

Petition to Save Turtle Island Preserve 

Eustace Conway, 51, teaches others how to live off the land at his 1,000 acre preserve called Turtle Island in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.   Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love author, wrote this biography about Conway and his decision to live a rustic life.  Many adults and children have visited Turtle Island for a day or at camps to break rocks to make stone tools, bend bark to fashion baskets, and spin sticks to create fire.   

Last fall a large team of health, fire and building inspectors escorted by sheriff’s deputies showed up to conduct what he describes as a SWAT team like raid. (Wall Street Journal Article)

The primary focus of this action centers on the buildings and construction methods.   He built log cabins from trees he cut down from his own property.  One of the alleged code violations is that the lumber he used was not marked by a mill.  The American heritage buildings that Turtle Island keeps alive and teaches about are “unacceptable” in today’s modern world. 

There are so many Tumblrs posting pictures of cabins and a rustic lifestyle I cannot believe this petition only had 12,000 signatures.

Our bee friends are back and working their magic on our plum tree

Our bee friends are back and working their magic on our plum tree

We recently acquired a copy of a new foraging book called “Edible Wild Plants” by John Kallas. What I like about this over other books is the book may only cover about 20 plants, but it covers them REALLY well. It also covers the plants you are most likely to find in your yard, neighborhood, or local park. Lo and behold, look at what we have growing along the side of our driveway: field mustard!! And the side yard: dandelions! 

There will be much dandelion winemaking and cooked greens with dinner!
